Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is one of the most commonly diagnosed -- and most commonly misunderstood -- hormone disorders among biological females.

I suffer from pcos
Sierra Stapleton (8 дней назад)
I was diagnosed with PCOS when I was 9/10 years old and I am now 15. I have had some issues regarding my weight, but I am now putting off weight (which I'm thankful for). My menstrual cycle is irregular, for the most part, but it has been regulating without the use of birth control or hormonal medicine except for my thyroid medicine.

I fallen into a Big depression. I have had severe acne since I was 15 due to pcos and I’m almost 30. It’s really hard to deal with pcos sometimes.

Had an mri that says I have polycystic ovaries but I don’t seem to have any of the physical symptoms. Only thing was that I had irregular periods and some acne when I was younger. Other than that I’m Lean, no acne, no excess hair. What gives?

There is currently no cure for PCOS. And it does not go away on its own. Even after menopause, women with PCOS often continue to have high levels of androgens as well as insulin resistance. Diet Instructions for PCOS women include. Eat the right kind of food. Consume vitamin C-rich food by eating plenty of fruits like orange, lemon, sweet lime, grape fruit, and grapes. Alcohol and smoking is a big NO. Eat wholegrain foods instead of processed, refined foods such as wheat flour. Avoid cakes, pastries, junk food, colas, jams and pickles. While there are some medications, including birth control pills, that can help with symptoms. Many women still have to deal with the effects of PCOS on their own. So Britt Hanlon I do understand the problem that you have been through. I was in the same situation too. Till when I got help from Bio tex clinic. And I can now say that I am a proud mother.

I do agree with you dear. Personally I have been struggling with PCOS too. But I decided to go for IVF in Bio tex clinic instead of IUI. For many couples, IUI is the first step in treatment. Because it's less invasive and less expensive than other assisted reproductive technology (ART) treatments, such as IVF. Couples with male fertility problems have an easier time conceiving through IUI. Success rates depend on a couple's fertility problem and age. Studies have found that for couples with unexplained infertility, the pregnancy rate for each natural IUI cycle is about 4 to 5 percent. And when fertility drugs are used. The pregnancy rate is about 7 to 16 percent. The success of IUI depends on several factors. If a couple has the IUI procedure performed each month. Success rates may reach as high as 20% per cycle depending on variables such as female age, the reason for infertility, and whether fertility drugs were used, among other variables.

I was diagnosed with PCOS yesterday. Not surprised, I knew something was up and I hadn't seen a gyno in 10 years (no insurance) so I paid everything out of pockets and did all the tests to figure out what was up with me. No wonder I was addicted to exercising and eating healthy because it mitigated the symptoms. Once I stopped working out in October, everything went to hell.

I’m 13 years old, and I’ve had my period since I was nine years old surprisingly! I have many of the symptoms and yet I’m too afraid to go the doctor or talk to my parents about it because I live with my father. I don’t know if I’m being a hypochondriac or not but I wish I could have an answer.

I have PCOS, birth control pills only made me spot blood. Alkaline water helps and it’s more natural with a PH of 7+ , AND I got my period after two days of drinking only alkaline water and I bled super super heavy like I was 15 again. I had it since I was 16 and didn’t know it until I was 20. Also I have dark patches on both sides of my cheeks, a light mustache (which appeared a year ago) & I barely ever get my period , I’m depressed all the time but I’m fighting each day 🤞🏾

i'm 15 and i got diagnosed with this condition when i was 14 my experience with it was extreme abdominal pain and very irregular cycles my whole entire ovary was covered in cysts and one actually burst causing me to not be able to move or even sit up for 5 hours. i was in the hospital with it for 4 days and i finally got a diagnoses on day 3 the worst thing was they weren't allowed to give me pain killers because i was in the ward and they couldn't give out medication so i was there just screaming in agony and at first they thought it was my appendix! i now can't do sports with balls in it because if i get hit it triggers an attack putting me to the ground in 30 minutes flat. i have to get scans every month now to make sure no other ones burst but really it's simple to live with to me personally although i do also have autism so it doesn't affect me too much as long as i don't get hit in the stomach or pressed too hard as it aggravates it a fair bit like that

There are many things that are misunderstood about PCOS. I am glad that you have decided to highlight theme here. So that people will get to know more about this problem. I was once in a similar case before. I really never had a clear picture of how the problem really is like. But when I went for my medication in Bio tex clinic. I got to learn some other new facts. Perhaps I can share them here for others to see too. Not all women who have PCOS are insulin-resistant or diabetic. PCOS is a leading cause in infertility and menstrual irregularity. Five to seven million of the female population have PCOS. Less than twenty-five percent of women with PCOS have been diagnosed. Between thirty to forty percent of women may experience insulin resistance. I know others will be surprised. Like the way I did the first time I came across them. But they are purely true.
Dream List (3 месяца назад)
I was diagnosed with PCOS litterally today. I cried for 30 mins. All I’ve dreamed my whole life is to have children. I’m just scared this won’t be an option anymore. I’m 16 and yes I’m too young to worry about this. I’m scared I’ll never be the mother I’ve always wanted to be. So if anyone could help with any advice with my mental state or anything please let me know.

Currently have pcos, it sucks!!! Im 21 and was diagnosed with it when i was 19. And now it has gotten a little out of hand..periods are flowing every other week..yea..not fun! And just to be safe, decided to get back on birth control for some help..now i need to exercise. Being a broke college student doesnt help sometimes when you want to always buy healthy meals to make..i do appreciate the advice in these comments! Lets get healthy together

This video is so true. Personally I have been through a similar scenario. I had to move from one clinic to another for me to get the correct diagnosis in Bio tex clinic. Many people may mistake it with other disorders which makes it difficult to find the reason of your infertility. The symptoms of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) are a big part of what makes this chronic disease so confusing. Not only do they differ from woman to woman. But many symptoms, such as fatigue, weight gain, and irregular or painful periods mimic those of many other diseases. Some women with the condition may show no symptoms at all. Because of this. Many women with PCOS are misdiagnosed or not diagnosed until symptoms become more severe or obvious to the right doctor.

Some oral contraceptives can cause ovarian cysts!! "There is an increased risk of ovarian cysts, perhaps up to 30%." Reference 1. "Ovarian cysts that might twist or break" Reference 2. Norethindrone or Norethisterone, POP or POCP, Mini-Pill This is almost never listed as a side effect. Look under "Warnings" in your Product Insert for this paragraph. "2. Delayed Follicular Atresia/Ovarian CystsIf follicular development occurs, atresia of the follicle is sometimes delayed and the follicle may continue to grow beyond the size it would attain in a normal cycle. Generally these enlarged follicles disappear spontaneously. Often they are asymptomatic; in some cases they are associated with mild abdominal pain. Rarely they may twist or rupture, requiring surgical intervention."

Hello i am only 13 but I have PCOS was diagnosed in January. I dont eat any added sugar no white flour only whole wheat no Starchy foods and barely any carbs!!! I hate going through this. It has not ran in the family and I am the first to experience. It’s challenging to be in secondary school and never being able to eat with friends or anything because you don’t want to explain PCOS to a boy but periods or illnesses shouldn’t be an ashamed topic and people need to be more open and help other women battle these

I was diagnosed with PCOS at the beginning of 2017 and was 23 at the time. I actually self diagnosed myself before seeing multiple doctors and later a gynaecologist. It have come to terms with it and I love that hormone therapy helped with my periods. Because I had erratic periods and it would go away for 7 months and then I'd bleed for like 4 months on one non-stop . I think my biggest concern is that I am insulin resistant and apparently was born as such. So managing my weight is my biggest concern

You can lose weight with PCOS! Its a common symptom that you gain weight with the condition but that didnt stop me.I lost 30 pounds after being diagnosed with it again(ugh) I still have a long ways to go .If you want to lose the weight and you know you have pcos GO FOR IT! it might take you a while for the pounds to drop but its totally worth it Dont let PCOS stop you from being healthy and happy!

I am 31 years old, and have just been diagnosed with PCOS. One of the things that PCOS also does is prevents you from ovulating. So if you are trying to get pregnant, like my husband and I are, then you may need to consult a doctor. I have been given some meds to regulate my ovulation. We'll see how it works...

I was diagnosed with PCOS by few Drs! No help at all , they just want to give you drugs and they didn’t work for me . I just leaved with it and just recently started researching about and realized how little I know about it . I am going to make a lot of diet changes to get better and be able to get pregnant again! My baby girl is 14 months and she was my miracle. Wish you all with PCOS lots of luck

Hello, I was diagnosed when I was 15. I fainted and the doctors ran a bunch of tests on me and then that was the conclusion. I really didn't pay attention to it, and fast forward a year I was crawling with acne in my face and I decided to go back and start a treatment. I've been on it for 2 years now, and my acne is basically none existing but my periods are still we're strong. The latest trouble I've had are migraines, ones that will completely knock me out and make me not go in to work. I've gained about 30 pounds in 8 months. What would you suggest I do?

A great book to check out is Laura Briden’s Period Repair Manual 2nd edition. Walter Futterweit’s book Understanding PCOS is wonderful also. He is the doctor that initially discovered/ named the disease and is the foremost expert in PCOS. Laura Briden has a website too. Amy Medling’s website is the PCOS Diva.com. I’d also check out Bridgit Danner at the Women’s Wellness Collaborative.

Heidi Matsumoto (6 месяцев назад)
I was also diagnosed with PCOS 2 years ago after ignoring it for almost 10 years! I was really overweight and the doctor told me that my condition can be helped a bit if I lose weight so I lost 20kg! My doctor also said that PCOS doesn't have a cure so I'm kind of scared to stop taking birth control pills because the doctor said that my irregular menstruation will come back if I stop taking them. However, you mentioned that it actually has a treatment! OMG I should get another opinion from another doctor. Furthermore, I also switched to a healthier lifestyle although it's not that VERY healthy but I least I've learned to eat healthier foods than before. One more thing, I'm not feeling anything weird and the pills really helped me in maintaining my regular menstrual cycle but many people told me that it's not good to take birth control pills for a long time so I'm wondering if I can still get a regular cycle if I stop taking those and just switch to a much healthier lifestyle. Gosh, and I've seen many people getting easily pregnant when they miss taking pills! I'm still a virgin though and I don't have a boyfriend. Hahah!

First of all I would like to thank for sharing this video with us. I was diagnosed of having PCOS at the age of 20. I rarely had my periods. My menstrual cycle was so disturbed. I had acne since my school life. Hair all around body . So ofcourse no one like such symptoms which I was having because of PCOS. Then I went to doctor and being tested and came out to be PCOS suffering patient . I took care of my diet and my emotions while I was going through my treatment. And by the grace of God and efforts of my doctors I'm now free from all those symptoms. I'm married now and have a baby too. So I advice everyone to be well aware of it. And watch such informative video like this and stay motivated. Thankyou!

Pcos is awful asf! I’m a 17 year old female with pcos, I have way more body hair and facial hair than my dad.. no matter how hard I try to remove it, it just comes back literally the next day.. plus I have a manly body and acne all over, and I’m starting to go bald! I’m not over weight like most females with pcos but like I said I’m very manly and it’s just sad.. I feel awful! And I have suicidal thoughts everyday.. Pcos has literally robbed my whole life. I wouldn’t wish it on my worse enemy!

What a useful informaton. PCO's is no fun but to be taken very seriously. PCO's leads to infertiltiy. Biotexcom in Ukraine is well know for fertility treatment that is surrogacy. Btw you explained very well. Thankyou. Take care.

I HATED PCOS. I was diagnosed with it a few years ago. It made my life miserable. It kept me from having babies. Thanks to God I got to know about surrogacy at the right time. I have twin boys now. All the credit goes to surrogacy and the amazing clinic in Ukraine that helped us.

This is very complicated disease. I have all the experience. My aunt suffered through this disease. the main part is that it affects your fertility. It is really very difficult to cope with it. This video is informative. PCOS is really a deadly disease.
boredjerboa (7 месяцев назад)
It runs in my family and it was pretty much a given that I would get it. When I was diagnosed yesterday with it I still felt like my world had been crushed, especially when the doctor referred to me as infertile. That was my biggest fear in life, not having kids. I have various other illnesses and disorders which make it even harder. I have fibromyalgia and that equates to exercise being almost impossible for me, I have an active job but its hard and there's no way i can exercise on top of it. To top it off I have an eating disorder, ARFID which in my case is pretty much a phobia of most foods. My diet consists almost solely of carbs because I just cant eat anything else without my body totally rejecting it and causing panic attacks etc. So, for me, PCOS is by far the worst thing I've been diagnosed with and I have severe tourettes. My life was finally getting back on track the last few weeks, now, it feels like its all falling apart. I'm 19 and I already spend a ridiculous amount of money on my tourettes medication, with the addition of another 2 medications and now a 3rd for the PCOS. I cant afford to even try and find a diet that suits my disorders let alone save up for fertility treatment in the future. I really, truly hope that other people don't have to go through this because its genuinely awful.

Today (12-13-17) I have been diagnosed with PCOS and noticed that no 2 PCOS are a like. I bleed for 3-4 months and have 2-3 weeks break in between, it is not fun. But finally there is a name for what I have, and I have been asking for nearly 18 years.
Ashley ASHLEYM (7 месяцев назад)
I mean this doesn't sound like me at all but some people think I have it due to my symptoms because a friend of mine thinks I have diagnosed non-classic congenital adrenal hyperplasia and those two share a lot of symptoms, but a lot of people think I have PCOS since it's more common but I don't have the period problems, acne problems or weight problems that usually come with PCOS. My period is painless and regular although my cycle can be long sometimes 42 days at most with my shortest one being 28 days but usually they're around 32-34 days long. I really want to find out what I have though, because it has to be something. There's no way I have this many secondary male characteristics (enlarged genitals, facial hair, excessive muscle mass, high sex drive) without excessive levels of androgen.

Micheala Wood (7 месяцев назад)
I definitely recognize these symptoms. Unfortunately when I was diagnosed I was like 17 and the doctor just told me I would have more testosterone than what's normal and didn't tell me exactly what the condition was so like I'm only now figuring out some of the reasons some things make me hurt when I eat them like gluten and dairy. I had to figure it out when a relative that has it described how she cut certain things out because of what they did to her stomach and I was like that's what I'm feeling and it just sorta clicked

DafneTheFangirl (8 месяцев назад)
I was diagnosed with PCOS since I was 15. But just now, at 23 years old, the doctors have decided that it's time to do something. I am always hot, I don't control my temper, I don't have my period for long time (even months), I have hair on my chin and neck, I risk of being diabetic and I risk obesity. Now I'm taking my life back, I'm trying to eat better (but I cannot avoid eating pasta since I'm Italian), and I'm trying to lose some weight. Be strong guys, and You'll overcome everything

This video is actually super helpful, I've never really known how common it was and it doesn't seem like a condition many people are willing to talk about. I'm 16 and last year I went to a gynecologist and showed my concern about me possibly having the condition. It runs in my mother's side of the family and my blood work came back with elevated testosterone levels and I explained to my doctor about my irregular periods. I also mentioned that I have a hair issue, and since I am Puerto Rican the hair isn't very easy to hide since it's so dark, I have to shave my neck everyday sadly. After explaining all this to my gyno and her seeing my blood work, she told me that I do not have PCOS and that I did not need any treatment. My primary care physician however listened to me and prescribed me Metformin to help with my symptoms. Thank you for posting such an informative video because like I said before, I didn't know some of this information

Ive had PCOS since I was 15ish Im 28 now.On the Pill.HATE it. BUT My Ovaries are supposedly ok.Had no period for a year. Also I have an "over-active" Pituitary that is causing the PCOS.I also had the first 2 symptoms on the 'scale'

They removed one of my ovaries that had a large cyst on it about a year ago and recently they told me there are more small cysts on my other ovary. My periods are fine but I am overweight, had really bad acne at one point and there was more hair on my body and less on my head. my doctor said I needed to lose weight and get pregnant soon bc otherwise I’d have a hard time getting pregnant.

This whole time I don’t think any of my doctors have tried to explain to me what it is and how to treat it. Lol they just tell me to lose weight.

I have a weird question. Is there a possibility of having PCOS to a female who isn’t even started to get her periods yet? PCOS and ovarian cysts is different?
Niccole1981 (8 месяцев назад)
Honest Opinions This is a very good question. You must have a menstrual cycle in order to be diagnosed with PCOS. However, studies show girls with precocious puberty and those who get their period before age 12 are high risk for developing PCOS. Researchers can't agree with this one. Some say symptoms cannot appear in children, some say precocious puberty is a "variant" or an early manifestation of PCOS. One thing I know for sure, Western Medicine has a long way to go when it comes to females and endocrine disorders. Seems when doctors can't figure these things out, they blame the patient!!!

Im 17 and i found out i had PCOS yesterday :/ havent had a period in almost 5 or 6 months, ive got forests of hobbit hair all over me, and no matter what i do or eat, i still dont lose any weight. Its honestly frustrating and definitely stressful, but im glad i have a name for this strange thing that takes a huge bite out of my life now. Its also a good thing im very much asexual, so the whole infertile thing doesnt bother me as much as it would someone else.

I hate pcos!! I hadn’t even heard of it till I was diagnosed but when I looked it up I just wanted to give up! It sucks! I’m only 16 and I’m stuck with this! At least I finally got the answer I always asked for about every thing that’s wrong with me 😐

I haven’t been diagnosed but I haven’t had my period for over 4 months and I know I’m not pregnant because I’m not sexually active or attracted to men. I was also told when I was younger that I have a lot of testosterone. I’m hairy but mostly on my legs if I don’t get to shave them. And I’m considered obese. I used to be underweight from anorexia and rn I have bulimia

I was officially diagnosed at 17 but was told I might have it at 15. I had to see three different doctors to be diagnosed and that was only after being tested for multiple other things. I've had all but one of the symptoms since 15 and got anxiety and an eating disorder. Yep, so fun 😑

wow this is the best (I'm assuming) non-doctor discussion of this I have seen on youtube. I'm an OBGYN, and I tell my patients many of the same things, including the "it doesn't mean you have ovarian cysts" thing. Good Job! If you wanna see my video on it, here it is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L62faWC4bTA

In 2015 I woke up with extreme pain in my hip, and knees that quickly spread to all my joints. I went in to see my dr and she tested me for RA and Lupus. She called me back in and said that I came back positive for Lupus. So about a month later I went to see an Rheumatologist. He said that I'm borderline for lupus but that he suspected that it could either be my thyroid or pcos which both give a positive test for lupus. I got a sonogram of my thyroid and it turned out to be enlarged. I did managed to see a Gynecologist but I couldn't go back to him due to insurance purposes. But I did managed to see an endocrinologist. But I didn't see him after for almost a year, again because of insurance. But I did see him a couple of months ago and he is testing me for pcos and diabetes and said that my thyroid was still enlarged so he wanted me to do another sonogram which I did yesterday. But I ended up going to the ER in August and they did labwork on me. I ended up needing to see a gastroenterologist quickly and when I saw her she told me if I had pcos. I said I'm getting tested for it , why you asked? She said cause your labwork came back with a high level of a dd something hormone which saids that you definitely have pcos. Which explains all the cyst I keep getting, facial hair, acne, and weight gain. But hypothyroidism, which is what is suspected I also have, causes weight gain as well. Just my luck. Lol. That's my story. Now I have an appointment next month with my endocrinologist and probably start treatment on both. I'm just looking up more info on what I have.

I was diagnosed with PCOS after a lengthy process Im now on a supplement called DIM. Its completely taken my cyst pains away I eat less ...Hair growth has lessened. My moods im FINALLY happy again. DIM & 5-6 DAYS gym is really helping. I realized though I cant eat too much sweets n fooxs with soy sauce in it. Iv also incorporated MACA powder into a glass of OJ everymorning and evening primrose oil. I take multivitamins daily due to working out. My diets okay I love food but I portion control and 3 days of tge week I dont eat till 2pm and only drink fluids to hydrate my beautiful temple. I wish all you beautiful ladies feel better and I encourage you to try the DIM supplement i bought it online 100mg i take 1 every morning and i track my ovulation when im ovulating I take 2 or 3 n my periods have stopped hurting OMG its like its not there but u know we feel that icki disgust in our pants lol... 😊😊🤗 evening primrose oil helped with acne from the dumb cysts..

I was diagnosised 3 weeks ago and i'm 15 and it sucks cause everyone talks about how much they hate their overies when really I have PCOS and it's just so hard and it took me 5 doctors to diagnose neb

I have PCOS. It took 3years to be diagnosed with it. My endocrinologist found out 3years ago that I have hormonal imbalances and I started to get medication. I had to go to hospital really often to check my blood and my hormone levels. I had really bad acne and irregular and absent periods in my whole life. 5months ago I was diagnosed with hyperinsulinaemia / IR so I started dieting and started to visit a dietitian. 2 months ago I went to a scan because I haven't had any period in months and I had really bad pain in my lower belly. The doctor said I have so much cysts on my ovaries that he can't even tell how much I have. I have to follow a really strict diet to keep my insulin level in balance and I have to workout in a certain way 3 or 4 times a week. I'm in constant pain and I have acne problems, I'm really hairy on my abs and face and sometimes my hair starts to fall out. I'm afraid I won't be able to have children and I am moody because of my hormones. I was suffering in bulimia and depression for 3 years. I've started a channel about my journey to help other women with PCOS because I feel like I know how much this disease sucks. My first video in English is coming next week :) hope others with PCOS are having good medication and keep going ladies ❤

can a person with pcos get children? - 16, just got diagnosed, afraid
Fluti1928 (8 месяцев назад)
Niccole1981 wow, thank you very much! <3
Niccole1981 (8 месяцев назад)
Fluti1928 Yes, many women with PCOS have children. Many of them have no issues conceiving. Those who do have problems, see fertility specialists. Often, women with PCOS & fertility issues go on to have healthy babies- with a little help. Don't fret. I wish I knew how deep PCOS was when I was 16. You have an advantage. You can adapt a healthy lifestyle and prevent a lot of nasty metabolic disorders that pop up later in life!! oh, btw, as you can tell, I have PCOS-and I have a daughter.
